The Cambridge Journal of International and Comparative Law (CJICL) will hold its third annual conference on May 10-11, 2014. The conference theme is Stepping Away from the State: Universality and Cosmopolitanism in International and Comparative Law.

This conference will explore approaches that question the traditional state-centric view of international and comparative law. The idea of universality suggests that international law applies equally and indiscriminately across domestic legal systems, and within sub-systems of international law itself. Cosmopolitanism conceives of the world as a single entity, with resonances between people irrespective of their location, nationality and culture, and asks how legal actors can access legal regimes beyond their stateís domestic framework

The CJICL welcomes a wide variety of proposals in the fields of comparative and international law (both public and private) that encompass empirical approaches, theoretical discussions and perspectives from practice.

Deadline: Abstract submissions must be no longer than 300 words in length and should be accompanied by a brief biography or CV. The closing date for submissions is 26 January 2014. Successful applicants will be informed by 10 February 2014 and must submit their papers by 27 April 2014. Applications should be submitted at†http://www.cjicl.org.uk/conference. im
